Require Fundraisers to Register for Your Event

In this article, we're going to show you a way to set up a Campaign that requires fundraisers to be registered for an event.

Let's say that you want to invite fundraisers for a 5K run, and need potential fundraisers to be signed up as registrants as well. Here’s the setup we recommend:
1. The supporter goes to the event registration page.
2. Once they sign-up, they'll receive an email receipt with an invitation to become a fundraiser.
3. If they want to fundraise, they can click on that link to become a Peer-to-Peer fundraiser for the event.

Here's a video of how this process would look like from a supporter's perspective.
 



To set this up, we're going to use the Registration and Peer-to-Peer tool.

First, you need to create the Registration Campaign. This will grab your registration sign-ups for the event. It will also be the Campaign that you'll promote on your webpage and other marketing channels.

Then, you'll create a separate Peer-to-Peer Campaign for that same event. This will allow your supporters to create their own fundraising pages. You'll link this to the email receipt of the Registration Campaign. This way, people registering for your event will automatically receive an invitation to become a Peer-to-Peer fundraiser as part of that receipt.

Here's how to set this up. 


STEP 1: CREATE A REGISTRATION CAMPAIGN

  1. Go to Campaigns > Create a New Campaign > Event/Registration > Fill in the Campaign details > Hit Publish Campaign.
  2. Under Tool Settings, click Manage Settings (Event/Registration).
  3. Set up your event registration:
